ALEX LAHEY

How would you describe your music in 5 words?

Really just another emo kid

Best piece of advice you ever received? 

Under some pretty ridiculous circumstances, Cyndi Lauper told me last week to take the paths no one expects you to take.

Who’s inspiring you at the moment? 

The Big Moon, Cyndi Lauper and my friend Kate

Who are you looking forward to catching at The Blurst of Times? 

Royal Headache, Jarrow and ol’ mate Jack River

What would you like your legacy to be?

Full of good records, songs, performances and friendships.

NICE BISCUIT

How would you describe your music in 5 words? 

FUNKY GLITTER PSYCH POP PALS

Best piece of advice you ever received?

A beautifully rough tradie whose knock off’s had gotten out of hand at one of our shows once told us to “play loose”… and we have ever since.

Who’s inspiring you at the moment? 

Our best mate Clea is doing so well in the music scene. We’ve watched her grow over the past few years and it’s really empowering to see her kicking ass. Every time we see her play we are even more inspired and amazed.

Who are you looking forward to catching at The Blurst of Times?

Ngaiire is one powerhouse of a lady and also keen to see Voiid unleash some fem energy.

What would you like your legacy to be?

A bit of a dance never hurt anyone, quit being so serious and put a bit of glitter on.

RACKETT

How would you describe your music in 5 words?

Loud, experimental, riot, rock, pop!

Best piece of advice you ever received?

Play through the pain and practice everyday.

Who’s inspiring you at the moment? 

PJ Harvey. Her musical transition from grunge girl to saxophone symphony leader, coupled with her most recent lyrical content, voicing her concerns about human welfare, helps me to delve deeper into the message I want to deliver and the issues I want to sing about. She inspires me to be both musically flexible and lyrically brave.

Who are you looking forward to catching at The Blurst of Times?

NGAIIRERoyal HeadacheI Know LeopardPLANET

What would you like your legacy to be? 

Save the planet.

MEZKO

Laura: Amalgamation of synthesis and modulation

Best piece of advice you ever received?

You can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube once it’s been squeezed out

Who’s inspiring you at the moment?

Kat: Soulwax, Soulwax and Soulwax
Laura: Been driving lots and going back over old and new favourites- Gerry Rafferty, Judee Sill, Flying Burrito Brothers….nice things and pretty places.

Who are you looking forward to catching at The Blurst of Times?

Kat: Soulwax?
Laura: Lots of the bands we haven’t seen that we’ve either been meaning to or haven’t had the chance yet. Looking forward to checking out The Creases, still haven’t seen Green Buzzard live, will be good to finally see them, obviously Royal Headache and just have a good run around and see as many as possible.

What would you like your legacy to be?

Kat: A mess
Laura: Regret free

IVEY

How would you describe your music in 5 words? 

Fun, sweaty, danceable beach pop?

Best piece of advice you ever received?

To never ever quit, no matter what, just keep going

Etta James

Who are you looking forward to catching at The Blurst of Times?

Alex Lahey she’s sick! Our friends The Creases and Good Boy! Concrete Surfers and Jack River too!

What would you like your legacy to be?

I want to be remembered as inspiring, to inspire one person through our music would be enough!
